Well the two amps I probably liked the least (in recent memory) were my Koch Multitone and Bogner Ecstacy Classic. In both cases...I just could NOT relate to the clean tone. In both cases the overdriven sounds weren't what I thought of as good enough to outweigh the lack of what I consdier a great clean.
My first amp, an old solid state Univox. I never could get a great tone out of it. Maybe it was the early sixties no name Japanese guitar that was the problem. I even got an old huge wooden TV cabinet with a 12" speaker in it to make a stack, but that didn't help.
Matchless Chieftain 2 x 12 with "their" Vintage 30's. Sounded VERY tight and constricted. The cleans were "OK," but for the life of me, I could NOT bond with the overdriven tone. Couldn't sell it fast enough.
Two-Rock Opal and Custom. GREAT sounding amps, but just not my cup of tea. Bonded with the tone (more or less) but just couldn't get my brain (or my hands for that matter) around the "feel." May try one again sometime in the future, but if I do, I will choose the speakers VERY carefully. Currently, Classic Lead 80's top my list.
